HKHS Football 2023: Cougars Fall to Stafford Co-Op

By Barth Keck
(September 15, 2023) — Evan Poulin of Stafford-East Windsor-Somers scored on three rushing touchdowns and passed for another to lead the Stafford-East Windsor-Somers Bulldogs (1-0) to a 29-0 win over Haddam-Killingworth High School (0-2) in Higganum on September 14, 2023.
The Stafford-based co-op took a 12-0 lead into the locker room at halftime and were able to extend it in the second half, converting on several third and fourth down plays.
“Our defense struggled to hold the line on third-and-long and fourth-and-long plays, which Stafford used to convert to scores,” said HK Head Coach Tyler Wilcox. “We’re so close at getting the job done on defense, but our inexperience at key positions is showing through at key times.”
Highlights for the Cougars included Joe Slane’s interception and Jacob Lamarre’s 40-yard kick return.
HK returns to action on September 22, 2023 at home against Coginchaug. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.
